The Member of Parliament for the Dome Kwabenya Constituency, Hon Sarah Adwoa Safo Esq., has led her constituents to make history by topping all the 275 Constituencies in the country in the just ended new voter registration conducted by the EC.Provisional figures of the registration exercise released by the election management body confirms Dome Kwamebya as the most populous constituency after recording over 172,000 registered voters.
This significant milestone chalked by the constituency did not come on a silver platter but was a culmination of the extraordinary efforts and strategies put in place by the Dome Kwabenya MP and her team coupled with the cooperation they received from the good people of Dome Kwabenya.
The MP, among other things, inspired her constituents to come out in their numbers to participate in the exercise in order to have the opportunity to vote massively to retain her and President Akufo-Addo for a job well done.
Throughout the period of the registration, Ghana’s first Procurement Minister and first Female Deputy Majority Leader, Hon Sarah Adwoa Safo, was actively involved in moving from house to house to encourage her constituents to get their names on the electoral roll. She also supported them with PPEs to allay their fears of contracting Covid-19 if they came out to register. It is thus not surprising that at the end of the registration exercise, Dome Kwabenya, for the first time in history, recorded the highest number of registered voters in the country, a belief the Member of Parliament had held for a long time.
